Can an accident be a trigger

I was knocked over by a bus in July and since then have been having episodes which I think is RLS (got an appointment with the quack later today). It's awful, it keeps me up a lot of the night, I only got 2hrs last night and felt like ripping my legs off but also had the shakes in my left arm. I'm hoping there's a simple cure but looking at some of these posts, I'm not optmistic!

  • Hi how did doctors appointment go?

  • Hi Daza,

    I'm sure the others will agree there is not simple cure, but (I know this is a bit late now) don't take any old "fluff" from the quack. If he/she is worth his/her salt they'll explore before scribbling out a prescription. There are quite a few treatments that provide relief, but you'll have to work with the quack to find the one that suits you. Good luck!

  • Despite her suffering herself in the past, she just prescribed Pramipexole 0.088mg. She said she'll check my iron levels too (after prompting). I had two yesterday and it improved last night but I know it's still there.
